Does it come with charger?
Danny G on Jan 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: mine came with a battery and charger. Unless it states (bare tool) it comes with a battery and charger. Bare tool means it only the tool alone and nothing else. I don't think this is a bare tool item so again it should come with a battery and charger
I am confused it say 40v but comes with a 36v battery
Mike on May 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Additionally, from what I've read, the battery listed as 40v is a newer version, rated at 2Amp (vs the older 36v rated at 1.5Amp); BOTH are basically identical re peak power output and both work for these tools, but think of the 2Amp simply as a slightly larger "fuel tank"...

BEST ANSWER: The batteries have been previously returned. However, they should be like new. Most reconditioned tools are returned due to a malfunction with the tool, so the batteries are never used.
